DJ Mustard may be on the line for a pretty penny in child support. Chanel Thierry, Mustard's former wife, has publicly criticized his substantial income. This was done in an effort to persuade him to pay more child support. In January, Thierry submitted a request to a California judge addressing various matters. The issues were many and varied, including child support, custody, spousal support, attorney's fees, and the breakdown in communication. She sought joint physical and legal custody of their three children. However, she requested the judge to grant her the authority to make final decisions regarding their children's health and education. Thierry claimed that co-parenting with Mustard had become increasingly challenging due to his lack of communication. She also mentioned that their former nanny now serves as Mustard's house manager. According to her, this further hindered effective communication regarding child-related issues.

DJ Mustard initiated the divorce proceedings in May 2022, citing irreconcilable differences. The court documents revealed that he and Chanel Thierry had signed a prenuptial agreement before their wedding in 2020. Mustard recently requested a status judgment to establish his and his ex-wife's single marital status. Furthermore, he sought to postpone the resolution of issues related to their children to a later date. Additionally, in another filing, he asked the court to retain jurisdiction over all other matters concerning their marriage. These issues included child custody, visitation, child support, and spousal support. He also asked the court to oversee division of assets and liabilities, confirmation of separate property, reimbursement claims, attorney and expert fees, and any other matters deemed appropriate.
